I saw a package of lamb sliders in the fridge section of A Matter of Health...I couldn'lt tell if it was GF but aren't lambs mostly GF? I got them because I love merguez and thought maybe this would be similarly delicious....do I just pan fry?
Are lambs gluten free? *blink* Yes.
Ground meat should not contain any gluten. However, since it is a pre-packaged food, it probably has an ingredients list. You should read it, since they sneak wheat fillers into all manner of things that don't need it. (Other sneaky things: soy, sugar, carageenan, msg, hfcs)
Also the word 'sliders' implies, to me at least, that they are small burgers - ground meat patty, mini-bun, cheese, and some sort of condiment. No clue what a "merguez" is.
TLDR, always read ingredients on packaged food before purchasing.
Ummm, GF meaning grass fed, mebbe?
In the UK, yes... US not so sure!
No bun no cheese...just raw uncooked mini lamb burgers...no ingredient list so mayb just ground lamb?
Merguez is lamb sausage so delish

haha oh that question might make more sense then. still, i would say not grass fed exclusively unless specified. Sheep 201: Feeding Lambs

Hahahahahaha I had the exact same reaction! Grass fed makes way more sense, but definitely read that as gluten-free.

From what I understand, they are usually allowed to graze on grass, but their diet is also supplemented with grain. It does vary, but if it doesn't say I would tend to assume the worst! I'm not familiar with that chain of stores though.
